Summary and comparison 2020:
Maintaining a car requires certain actions, including emptying. Drain an operation that must be performed regularly to preserve your car’s engine and extend its life. Given its importance and benefits, mechanics recommend doing this regularly and especially after a certain mileage.
Why drain your car regularly?
Draining your car means changing the engine oil in the engine after a certain period of driving. The drain maintains the engine’s performance and power and extends its life. Know from your check that your vehicle’s engine is a very complex set of moving parts such as valves, pistons, camshafts, crankshafts and connecting rods. For the proper functioning of the engine, all these parts in the engine must interact with each other thanks to the lubricant which is the engine oil. If the engine oil is not changed regularly, it will become clogged and the engine parts cannot be lubricated for optimal operation. Poor interaction between engine parts due to lack of new lubricant causes ineffective parts and friction in the engine. On the other hand, when the oil is changed regularly, it reduces the risk of component wear and engine corrosion. It also prevents the engine from overheating, which can cause significant damage.
When should I empty my car?
When we talk about emptying regularly, that doesn’t mean it has to be done every week or every month. The emptying of your car must be done according to the instructions of the manufacturers in general and the manufacturer of your car in particular. For certain cars, the oil change should be done after 10,000 to 30,000 km or every year. The frequency of this operation also depends on the condition of the vehicle’s engine and the particularity of your car’s engine. Even if you drive a long distance in a day or a week, you can deflate your car when it reaches the mileage required by the manufacturer. But to avoid any inconvenience, it is advisable to drain your car after 15,000 km, regardless of the nature or peculiarity of your car engine.
